It's a glorious day and I just got round to listening to the new Boards of Canada. How about you?
Some of the most bangin' tunes they've ever done, along with two tracks that are so embarrassing (Bolshy and Thursday) that I'd rather slice my own ears off than have to listen to again.
'Love Is A Bourgeois Construct' is my favourite song on there without a doubt.
then alice boman has been my afternoon so far.
It's a corker. For fans of Can/Neu!
on wednesday. i am quite excited now.
But Me and my Brother are putting on a night at Water Rats.
I hate clashes!!!!
Can't stop listening to it, more hip-hop albums (and fuck it, albums in general) should barely go over the 30 min mark, provided of course like this record that there's absolutely no fucking around and just relentless great tracks.
It's really great, isn't it?
Great Cop. seems perfect for the weather too.
has become one of my favourite songs to listen to in the sun. Been mostly on The Mountain Goats otherwise
Over here supporting great cynics in September too if anyone's interested.
Listened to a bit of Tellison & Fair Ohs before as well.
Cheryl Lynn, Candi Staton, Sister Sledge, Stacy Lattisaw...... guaranteed good times :)
Okkyung Lee's newie on Ideological Organ is BRUTAL. Also playing Nico Muhly and Ben Frost. and Peverelist's Roll With The Punches on constant repeat
I need comforting today and Grandaddy will suffice.
Suits the balmy weather.
as I still haven't got round to getting it yet!
Today, I've been mostly listening to a bunch of Pavement and Speedy Ortiz's new album Major Arcana. Great indie-rock for the great summer weather!

Turbines - really enjoyed that this afternoon
(great title) by Peter Jefferies on the way home. the re-release reminded that I needed to properly acquaint myself with it, so I've been doing just that.
it has this low key, mundane vividness to it (yeah) that was initially underwhelming, but oddly compelling.
it gets under your skin, like an ostensibly unremarkable place loaded with feeling over time.
it's time for The Life Pursuit.
perfect music for a warm sunny day
just a few tunes by the Maths & Physics Club
Looking forward to seeing them this weekend at Latitude.
Which means, theoretically, I am listening to John Cage.
Dreamin' Wild at the mo.
Thought it was going to be a bit of a case of the story behind the album overshadowing the songs, but the album's actually really grown on me.
The bassline in Double Dolphins on The Nickel.. Aaaahhhhhhhhh
Listened to it probably 15 times this week.
that's the first Luke Haines album where it just looks plain bad :/
totally nuts but great
and it seems to get better with every listen.
one of the most purely joyous things ever recorded. like mainlining sherbet
What a great talent.
Really like the new album and also the debut that comes as a freebie if you buy the CD
